REN Clean Skincare ClearCalm Non-Drying Spot Treatment

I am quite lucky in that I don't get spots. I never had acne as a teenager and I never suffered from breakouts, my only issue is cold sores which I am prone too whenever I am stressed or feeling run down and the odd spot which appears either on my chin or on my forehead during my menstrual cycle, often poking at me from under the skin rather than emerging to make its presence known.

REN skincare is one of my go-to brands when I am feeling a little bit eurgh, their Magnesium Booster Bath Salts which are just incredible.  Anyway, REN has a brand new addition to the ClearCalm range called ClearCalm Non-Drying Spot Treatment (£15).

Again, continuing with their efforts to become zero waste by 2021, the packaging is 100% recyclable, with the cap being made from 100% recycled materials and the tube being made from 50% recycled plastic.

Described as being a skin-loving spot solution specifically designed to be non-drying. This treatment is infused with:

  • Willowbark - This naturally derived precursor to salicylic acid helps clear spots without irritation.
  • Maritime Pine and Thyme Complex - Soothes skin, while aiding recovery and reducing the potential for scarring.
  • Prebiotic Chlorella Extract - Supports the skin microbiome and helps rebalance healthy bacteria.

Working together, they help to reduce redness, spot size and potential scarring as well as being deeply moisturising and helping to rebalance your skin's microbiome, this truly is a skin saviour that won't irritate or aggravate spots.  As if my hormonal spot knew this had arrived to be tested, I tried it out immediately.  The tube comes with a handy nozzle so you can apply directly to your spot(s) without getting the serum everywhere, bright orange in colour, as soon as the serum comes into contact with the skin, it disappears.

There are a few ways to use this serum, as well as being applied direct to the spot(s) in question, you can also add a few drops into your moisturiser, mix and apply all over.

What I like about this serum is that it is, as the name states, non-drying.  One of my issues with many a spot cream is that they do dry out the skin, which for me, never works and if anything I always feel my one spot is angrier than ever before.  So ClearCalm applied to my hormonal friend and within two days not only had it decreased in size, it was no longer sore to the touch and my skin didn't look angry. I am prone to redness on my cheeks, so I have been using this product on my left cheek where the redness is always more pronounced and being honest, it has slightly calmed it down, it hasn't fully disappeared, but then I have only been trying it there for the last two weeks to see what happens, usually I grab a green colour corrector to camouflage instead.

At £15 (here*) this is really affordable. The tube contains 15ml of product and because I have only used a little, it will last for quite some time before I would need to purchase a tube.  If you have tried this, I would love to know what you think!

  2. I love Ren products, so affordable but such good quality and usually quite effective. Unfortunately, my skin is usually suffering from a breakout or five so this might be ideal for me! Thank you for sharing, a non-drying formula sounds great as what I typically use (witch hazel, tea tree, toners) can be quite drying. Hope you are having a great weekend xx
